Steps for adding cheese, roast beef, caramelized onions, and rolling Caramelized Onion Roast Beef Rolls


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.

Caramelized Onions

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter.
  • Add onions and sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to soften and brown (about 5 minutes).
  • Add salt and pepper and reduce heat to medium.
  • Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and caramelized (10 to 15 more minutes).
  • Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

Roast Beef Rolls
